    In addition, 360 imaging can be shared on a G2N unit via an ethernet network.

    Ship date will be December.

    So, no box/adapter w/hardware to allow it to connect to Helix G2N units, without having the latest Solix or Helix. kinda sucks, more money.

    I almost bought the 360 and ultrex from you this spring. Now I will need a new unit also, to run the mega 360.

    Thanks for the info

    Well it depends. If you're only running 2 finders (1 G3N and 1 G2N) you won't need the black box (5port Switch) but you will still need the 2 ethernet adapter cables (AS EC QDE) and a single ethernet cable to go between them. The MEGA 360 will connect through a transducer port but be shared across the network through the ethernet connection.
    Now, if you have i-Pilot LINK on your trolling motor or a 3rd Gen 2 or Gen3 unit, then you will need the 5 port switch and adapters for each Helix plus and ethernet cable for each Helix to reach the switch.

    Brian, did you find out anything about maybe what the Mega 360 is going to come with? How long the plug in cable will be? Will it come with gps puck like the gen 1 360 comes with? A Y cable to plug it and a transducer also into? Bet the Y cable is a extra to purchase.

    I have a 23 8 Carolina skiff and am going get the ulterra with compatible hummingbird helix units. I see plenty of videos with the live scope which is the better units in your opinion. I fish for almost anything fresh and salt water.

    Here are some questions I asked the HB reps about the MEGA 360 and includes their reply....>>

    What's in the box with MEGA 360 ?
    -10 ft Extension Cable
    - 10 ft SOLIX to HELIX Adapter/extension (connector comes standard for SOLIX).


    How long will the y Splitter cable be ?

    - 30” splitters


    Does the short attached cable from the top of the 360 attach directly to the Splitter or will there be an extension cable ?

    - Depending on configuration.
    - If you want it direct to the SOLIX or Helix and don’t care about using that SOLIX/Helix for another ducer (i.e: trolling motor MDI), you can connect direct with an extension
    - If you want to read depth from your trolling motor transducer, you would use the Y cable (1 lead on the splitter going to 360 and the other to Minn Kota’s MDI connector) and then use the extension to bring it to the SOLIX or Helix.

    Is the AS GPS HS heading sensor included ?

    - Not included. Only needed if you want to overlay waypoints.
